by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an economic crisis that we're still cleaning our way out of. so -- so we know what works and we know what doesn't. and governor romney now is a very talented salesman. so in this campaign, he is trying as hard as he can to r
guarding the come pound taking pictures." the classified cable sent to hillary clinton noted by headquarters that the situation on the ground was so dire in the long-term the consulate would take the extreme step of moving in with the cia at the annex which also came under attack on 9/11. >> the conditions on the ground were such that literally the back were up against the wall. they had no options left. >> reservations about the libyan security, escalates violence, rise of demolition central to the classified table sent in mid-august, forshadows the commando style attack. >> if one could ask why didn't the state department respond to requests for enhanced security in benghazi, especially with the kind of information that this cable reveals. a number of explanations come to mind. to me it's the ide log call explanation that the war on -- ideological explanation that war on terror is over and al-qaeda is defeated. >> multiple sources on the ground tell fox news low level improvements made at the consulate compound, adding barbed wire. separately in column at the "washington ti
. >> le met play what clintoned. i'll tell you another concern a lot for some dengs behind the scenes that there's a nation a enthusiasm gap or it disappeared at this point. let me play it. >> i hear all these people say i was so enthusiastic four years ago. i so much hoped for a change. i'm disappointed in this, that, and the other thing. i may be the only person in america, but i am far more enthusiastic about president obama this time than i was four years ago. >> so there you have it, at least in some part former president bill clinton acknowledging this enthusiasm story line that's an undercurrent. you can't deny it. >> i'm so proud to have worked for bill clinton. can i say that on the air? >> are you angling for awe new job? >> he's not running for anything. i remember working for him. he was the same way then as he is today. he's so optimistic, but so are americans. americans are by nature optimistic he people, and that's one of the reasons why this country is so special and has on so many inonovatorinnovators. we're by nature future oriented people. president clinton himself
and bill clinton in florida. he was supposed to be in florida with the president. let me play what former president clinton had to say. >> i was supposed to be the warm-up man for president obama today, but that storm on the east coast had other ideas. >> but obviously the show does go on in some capacity, but talk me quickly about the perils for both of them. obviously, the president is the president. this is his responsibility, to have the concern of the american people on the forefront. what does governor romney do or say, other than this point that he's trying to be sense and pull off the campaign trail tomorrow and not today? >> it's no accident that bill clinton was in orlando. that's a key swing area right in the heart of that i-4 corridor. there was a cnn poll out today showing a 50/49 race between the two sides. pretty much a dead-even race. missing out on a day or two to get people out to the polls can really hurt both campaigns. mitt romney has to walk this fine line and so does the president not wanting to look too political in a situation like this when you could, as bill kar
clinton picked up the slack and held that rally now. now we know that bill clinton will be in seven states in the coming week. how much is that a help to the obama team? >> well, without putting too fine a point on it you can imagine the situation in which that helps quite a lot. bill clinton having received better reviews at the democratic convention than the sitting president. bill clinton is hugely popular in the democratic base. so getting those crowds out is important because in the states they take them from the events to the polling places and you grab them and you say, come knock on doors with me this weekend. spend more time volunteering to get these votes out. so it's important that the gathering function of these events continue to happen. and with bill clinton being a big draw he's the best surrogate barack obama could have in these crucial states. >> now, bill clinton was in connecticut yesterday and he had this to say about the storm. he said we're facing a violent storm. but it's nothing compared to the storm we'll face if you don't make the ri
goes to the directly to the office of secretary of state hillary clinton. >> steve: goes directly to hillary clinton . this flyies in the face of the mem that the white house is pushing. we didn't have warning that there was trouble there. that simply is not true . on august 8th. ambassador stevens sent a cable that benghazi was a security vacume and on september 11th the ambassador was under fire and siege and growing problems with security and now the new cable shows there was a potential for a coordinated attack. clearly this is not the message that the white house wants to push. newt gingrich was on with shawn hanitet and he is disgusted by it >> the white house is playing games with us. who was in charge. who did the president say should take care of this? did they want to rescue the ambassador and people killed with him? why was nothing done for sevenhours? you now have 7 weeks of refusal to explain seven hours and i find it mystifying. >> gretchen: current politicians and senators and members of congress asking a lot of the questions . the white house is pushing a particula
importance for our president in the next four years. secretary of state hillary clinton who offered a foreign policy address on this very stage just two weeks ago has written in foreign policy about the growing significance of the u.s. asian relationship. she wrote, one of the most important tasks of american statecraft over the next decade will be to lock in a substantially increased investment, diplomatic, economic, strategic and otherwise in the asia-pacific region. the secretary went on to describe the work ahead. success requires maintaining and advancing a bipartisan consensus on the importance of the asia-pacific to our national interests. we seek to build upon a strong tradition of engagement by presidents and secretaries of state, of both parties, across many decades. the breath and tenor of leadership, diplomatic work across many years and spending both political parties at our panelists represent today. and it's the work that georgetown has committed itself to pursuing to the expanding work of our asian studies program, and several other programs across our campus, that explore thr
closing argument. he's dropped the line and instead he's about bill clinton and what bill clinton's role was in doing kind of the right by the economy. and now talking about himself, barack obama, president obama as a leader who unites people. brings people together. and is now going back to the message of change from 2008, saying not talking about changing washington, but bringing americans' voices into washington and talking about himself as a unifier, clearly a mantle he is picking up in the wake of his leadership role in the role he's taken after superstorm sandy. >> it's amazing. the twist and turns this race has taken, i guess every presidential race does in the final days. a new polling out from colorado, still a very tight race there. what does it mean for next tuesday? what do the number show? >> the numbers in colorado show 50-48 for the president. that's a statistical tie. this is a state that is going down right to the very end. you can tell that when you're here. the early voting. this is one of the places republicans have even a slight advantage. that's not the case in any
to bill clinton and will cain from theblaze.com. >>> like something out of the 1970s, gas is hard to get in storm-ravaged areas. we'll have much more coming up. at shell, we believe the world needs a broader mix of energies. that's why we're supplying natural gas to generate cleaner electricity... that has around 50% fewer co2 emissions than coal. and it's also why, with our partner in brazil, shell is producing ethanol - a biofuel made from renewable sugarcane. >>a minute, mom! let's broaden the world's energy mix. let's go. 100% new. 100% mmm... wow, that is mmm... it's so mmm you might not believe it's a hundred calories. new yoplait greek 100. it is so good. new yoplait greek 100. what if there was a new that focused less on feesy and more... on what matters? maybe your bank account is taking too much time and maybe it's costing too much money. introducing bluebird by american express and walmart. your alternative to checking and debit. it's loaded with features, not fees. because we think your money should stay where it belongs. with you. the value you expect. the service you deserv
is a complete head shake. i am not convinced how tough it is for mitt romney. you notice that bill clinton will be in pennsylvania on monday. aside from president obama the former president is the best surrogate his campaign has. bill clinton is going to be in pennsylvania on monday, the fact that obama campaign has spent more money on television in pennsylvania suggest there is some concern that the race has pulled closer than the obama folks thought it it could would be. >> heather: and storm sandy and jobs report. last one that came out on friday? >> these are both hard questions. simply because we've hevnhev an event like this speaking of sandy so close to a national election. how voters respond to the negativity and clamor of the campaign which as come back to full swing as to what has happened in new jersey, new york and connecticut, it's such an open question. it will be interesting to see how it plays out in terms of whether voters take that into account and think about that on tuesday. >> heather: we appreciate your insight. >> gregg: becoming to the bottom of the terror attack in
that he and the president are breaking their neck to get real immigration law. clinton was in minnesota. a state that democrats were supposed to lock upped long ago. he tried to use a superstorm to hit republican mitt romney. >> he ridiculed the president. ridiculed the president for his effort to fight global warming and economical beneficial ways. he said oh, you'll turn back the seas. my part of america we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> obama camp is also suddenly spending $650,000 on tv ads in pennsylvania. democratic stronghold with 20 electoral votes. they revealed today going on the air in pennsylvania, the obama campaign sees a bluff. stephanie cutter taking a time-out from the bipartisan kumbaya over the storm to tweet romney decision to go up and p.a. proof positive they can't make the current map work to get to 270. throwing out lifelines to pennsylvania, minnesota. #desperate. obama team responds with team romney spending money in north carolina, that battleground may not be locked down as much as the g.o.p. hoped. we'll find out who is expanding
this. minnesota is a blue state that bill clinton did visit not a few -- not but 72, 36, some ente ger of 12. >> this is one you should totally ignore what these guys are saying and look where they're putting their money. that's the key resource, the key decisions at this point. where does the candidate go, the money go. to this point they can lie all day, too late in the campaign to get caught on it and look where the resources go. >> you know, i think it was mark halperin who said this, eric, that, you know, romney could have done this earlier. he could have maybe forced obama and the campaign to redirect its funds to states where they didn't want to have to play. just on the -- just to sort of deplete resources, if not to actually win votes. >> that's right. the 50 state strategy. you could have rolled that out. you could have tried to get him to play everywhere, spread him thinner and they didn't do it. it's too late to be doing that in any significant way. they might hit a few key markets with ads like in toledo to try to swing a little chunk of the state that they actually think
with the latest. >> good evening, bret. this is a cable sent to secretary of state clinton's office at the state department showing that there was emergency meeting on august 15 at the u.s. mission in benghazi. significant because that is less than a month before the terror attack there. at this emergency meeting we're told, based on the cable, there was concern expressed by officials on the ground in benghazi that there were al-qaeda training camps there. there could be problems for from that. the cable says the regional security officer expressed concern with the ability to defend the post in event of the coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities and post nation is up -- host nation support and the overall size of the compound. they also in this cable say if the emergency meeting they describe the security situation in benghazi, as "trending negatively." they also said that they would be asking for more protection from the government. we know the calls for more security were not heeded. also important to note, though, that the cable says that the intel
. his name was bill clinton. when he was first elected, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of
. hillary clinton and president obama come out and try to set the record straight. right now and not spin everything. we don't -- we don't want the details. we just want answers and want accountability and want people to resign if they have to. >> brian: scott, two quick points to get to in a minute. real quick, when you hear the secretary of defense say i didn't want to put my guys into harm's way in uncertain situation, you are a navy seal. don't you always go into uncertain situations? >> if i got the call right now, right now to go to libya or anywhere else to help folks and they needed me, i would be there right now. every single military member, cia folks, state department guys, security, anybody would step up to the plate and run out there in harm's way to save fell will he americans. there is no doubt about it. >> brian: you think he was disingenuous when he said that because you and delta force and guys like you do this all the time? >> folks like us and that are out there right now. that's what we do. that's what we would do. i think it was a misleading statement at best. >> bri
employ. you know, james what president clinton said in the democratic convention. no president even myself could have solved the mess we were given . >> it is a fact-free argument. president obama said he would solve it and making promises. and that shart testimonies the store store and the effort to say it was bush's fault. we were growing faster in the early president obama term. in the year 2010 when obamacare and dodd-frank enacted it was very slow. you want to point out the difference. there was more growth in the beginning of president obama's presidency than now? >> we are going in the wrong direction. forward is not the term for the way the economy is headed now even if that is the obama campaign slogan. and you lock at history of recoveries. this one stands out. we ought to be further along in a rebound, faster growth more employment and it is it not happening. >> gretchen: you question the moving forward with the policies and what the policies might be to continue the recovery with regard to taxes. >> that's what is scary right now. you can see very weak growth and then we
to meet with the president and president clinton on monday. that rally has been cancelled. >> reporter: the latest poll shows virginia a dead heat, an important state for romney. he cancelled three campaign events in the state and is expected in ohio today with paul ryan. >> today when we get home put in the prayers the people in the east coast in the wake of this big storm that's coming. >> reporter: ohio is another must-win state. a poll has the race tied 49-49%. >> i know they are chanting four more years but we're chanting all over this country nine more days. >> reporter: on cnn senior obama advisory david axelrod was asked how the storm would impact the race. >> we have to focus on how to help people during the storm and hope it clears out and that by the next weekend we'll be free of it and people can focus on the election. >> reporter: now romney heads to the swing state of iowa on monday. he got a boost with the endorsement of the des moines register. the paper has not endorsed a republican since richard nixon. that was 40 years ago. the president was unable to revive the stru
: bill clinton is working just as hard as the candidates. >> barack obama should be the next president. >> reporter: and in ohio, ann romney got emotional as she asked for votes. >> we have come to know this country on such an extraordinary level. and i can't even tell you how much i love it. >> reporter: yesterday, new york city mayor michael bloomberg endorsed president obama. the independent mayor has been critical of both the president and mitt romney. but he said sandy changed his thinking and that president obama will take action on climate change. rob and sunny, back to you. >> karen, thanks a lot. tuesday night, let abc be your place for live up-to-the-minute results with george stephanopoulos and diane sawyer. >>> the former president of penn state has been charged with a cover-up in the jerry sandusky scandal. graham spanier is accused of perjury, obstruction and child endangerment. his lawyers say the facts don't support the charges. and says the governor is behind what they call a politically-motivated frame-up. >>> and here's a wild scene across the state of montana as pol
, that's who headed fema. clinton was the first -- was the first president to allocate the fema head who actually had experience -- >> disaster. >> -- disaster management. it's not political. it's about poverty. it's about race. and when we think about disaster preparedness as well as recovery, the ways in which these two americas break down, you see that again and again and again. >> it's also i think the other point here is that it's something that will happen i think often is people on the left we get into this defensive crouch around the role of government and so we defend the states' actions in the abstract, but if you talk to lefty activist who are part of common ground and katrina it was government bureaucracy who was their enemy. and folks on staten island are frustrated and angry and feeling they're not getting enough attention, the target of that anger is the government bureaucracy and you can't fall into the trap i think as a liberal saying, oh, the state in the abstract government has a role to play and not also be very clear-eyed about the failures of specific bureaucratic p
clinton. >> i was supposed to be the warmup man for president obama today. >> obama left early this morning and they believe the weather in washington detearateed so fast it would be difficult to land air force one later in the day. >> the early voters are already making decisions. you know what our decision is. what i want to do is make sure that everybody who agrees with us votes. >> key part of the obama campaign strategy is early voting which could be effected in coastal battlegrounds. today, the virginia state board of elections urged localities to keep moving forward with in-person absentee voting unless the storm makes it unsafe. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. worry about the impact on families and the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on the economy. >> it could delay friday's release of new jobs report just four days before the election. >> labor department official later said it's our intention that friday will be busy as usual. regarding the october employment report. notice wiggle room with the "intenti
in china. >> to quote bill clinton, that takes brass. but that ad got four pinocchios from washington post, got pats on fire from politico. so obviously he stopped, right? wrong. he's now buying ohio ads in the ohio city home of the jeep plant. >> now come words that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in toledo and throughout ohio? the same hard working men and went who were told obama's auto bailout would help them? >> today chrysler's ceo sent a letter to employees saying, i feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position. jeep productions will not be moved from the united states to chi china. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. inaccurate is a kind way of putting it. when corrected time and time again, governor romney has walked away from the truth. he hasn't fibbed, he hasn't mud idea the facts. he lied. and it's a lie he is selling to the people of ohio. it's desperate behavior from a desperate candidate. joining me now is former ohio governor ted strickland, national co-chairman for the obam
, and secretary of state, hillary clinton, demanding 18 what they knew of the attack on benghazi. and my guest says the president may want to put off bragging. explain. >>guest: well, it is almost incomprehensible and more than many can take that we have a domestic tragedy at the same time we have this horrible, horrible preventable national security tragedy. what we finding out now is that there will be more blame, so much blame to go around starting at the white house, when they knew it, what knew and who made the decision not to rescue our form c.i.a. operatives and our military. it is almost incomprehensible when we started to overthrow qadaffi a year ago, over a year ago, we had this exact discussion. it didn't take a crystal ball to tell you and tell your viewers this is exactly what the end result was going to be. we throw out a known quantity, a very, very bad guy, qaddafi, we understand that and we arm, as i said them, al qaeda, hamas, muslim brotherhood, and what do we do? we put our guys out in harm's way and lead them to slaughter. this is absolutely going to be in my opinion will
from the 1990s, which is president clinton, who had a balanced budget. he asked the wealthy to pay more. the rates went up to 39.6. we had eight years of very strong growth. >> including surplus. >> i'm not saying the taxes cause that but we know that having higher taxes on wealthy americans didn't lead to a recession as republicans have argued. that's what's really daunting about the whole discussion about taxes. the fact that we have no real idea what mitt romney will do on taxes as president other than if we take him at his word, it does mean that middle class americans will pay more in taxes. either he is not being honest with us or middle class americans will see a tax increase. that's the choice people have. >> he also seems to be threatening us a little bit. ari, i want you to respond to this. let's listen to mitt romney who seems to be threatening that if president obama is reelected that republicans are going to take us over the fiscal cliff. let's listen to this. >> unless we change course, with he may well be looking at another recession. you know that if the president is ree
? >> reporter: he is still off the campaign trail though president clinton filling in for hum in wisconsin which is very interesting state to look at the way the race is tightening up. the president will be back on campaign trail tomorrow. his big event is with governor chris christie in new jersey. governor christie had high praise for the president last couple days for the response to the storm. that will be an interesting image to watch. yesterday at the red cross president obama said he would make every effort to cut through the sort of red tape that the romney campaign says he tried to our aboutry america in. here's the president. >> we have a situation where that lasts for days on end and so my instructions to the federal agency has been, do not figure out why we can't do something. i want you to figure out how we do something. i want you to cut through red tape. i want you to cut through bureaucracy. there is no excuse for inaction at this point. >> reporter: as the campaign sets to resume full tomorrow, jim messina, president obama's campaign manager, has a video out today talking about
and mika are hosts of "morning joe." >> one thing we do know, bill clinton is going to be very nervous about having to fill all that space by himself today without barack obama. he's going to do great in orlando, obviously. but mitt romney had momentum. you look at ohio, ohio poll that came out, had him dead locked. minnesota poll, three. gets the endorsement from "des moines register." in that state that's a big deal. this is mitt romney's best weekend and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes the race but you certainly know that it's a new dynamic into the race and it changes everything with a week to go. >> the question is how. a lot of people have different theories which candidate it benefits. ate moment for the president to be commander-in-chief, to be presidential, but there are pitfalls with that. >> it sure is. there are pitfalls because something could go wrong and people could maybe perhaps, the president isn't doing enough. but if this storm is as big as it portends to be, expect command centers up and down the coast and the not be very visible at all
't be headed to virginia. it's affecting the president in some of his campaigning this week with bill clinton. do we know if anything else could be changing because of the storm? >> one of the big things you saw, the without -- president obama has decided to stay here in d.c. at the white house to monitor sandy. mitt romney has changed the schedule so he will be back up in ohio with paul ryan. but one of the things that's going to be interesting sellery voting actually started this weekend -- is early voting actually started this weekend. in florida, maryland, there were lines in d.c. there's been encouragement for voters to get out this weekend and too thedo their early votine hurricane sandy comes through and messes up everything. >> i saw pictures over the weekend from joe johns, polling places in virginia. looked to be very long lines. people trying to get in before the storm hits. let me ask you this -- oftentimes in politics, in october before the big election, people talk about an october surprise. might this be the october surprise, this go round? >> you know, this is certainly surpri
, particularly under clinton, who really did a good job of reforming fema. we said, yeah, this is one of the things the federal government does well. and when states get into trouble like this, yes, they can do things for themselves and they do a lot of stuff for themselves. but they've got to have the fed. i think right now, he has no choice but to say, well, whatever i said before, i'm going to keep fema. >> e.j. dionne, are we going to be lacking on this campaign, if romney loses, saying, it was the 47% tsunami. that it really was that that set the table for a lot of other problems that he just couldn't overcome throughout this campaign? >> well, i think that the -- whatever momentum romney had from the first debate stopped. and my reading of the polls is the last week had already been going at least slightly in obama's direction. and at least on the first couple of days, from the reaction to what the president did, from the difficulties romney has, this appears to be helping obama some more. and as long as polling stations can open up in places like philadelphia and in northern vi
who wants to make a donation can drop it off at hoboken high school at eighth and clinton street, we really appreciate that. we heard from a correspondent, i saw a lot of volunteers. they saw guys out trying to clear out drainage. that is heartening to see. >> it's amazing. volunteers have been absolutely amazing. i was with a team of volunteers tonight, going through, knocking on doors, checking on seniors, especialing those on a tenth floor of a building, hallway is dark, they can't get downstairs and can't climb all of the stairs, we were checking in, making sure they had food, bringing in water. we need more teams, making sure we are going to every single building. even in areas that aren't flooded. we need to check in on residents that really need us right now. we get through this power outage, what we're focused on. >> the question all day long, how quickly do you think power can be restored? >> that's the question the day. yeah, i mean, the estimates are a little scary, seven to ten days, what we're making sure -- part of the issue for us, two of the pump stations are flooded,
